This isn't out of the secondary yet, but it tastes great and finished really smooth. The aroma is citrusy, but not overbearing and goes great with the rye flavor. I got a little better attenuation then planned and this finished at 1.012 for an ABV of 7.0%. I'll be kegging it today and will check back in here with good tasting notes in a few weeks. I made this as my last PM before going AG, so the AG version of this recipe is unproven but should be pretty close.

Now that looks like a nice quaffer! I have a Red Rye ale planned out, but its going to be malty. So the aroma is citrusy, but how about the taste. I made Dude's Lake Walk Pale Ale and botched the volumes, so i came out with a very red, hoppy GRAPEFRUIT IN YOUR FACE flavor that mellowed out in a couple months. I suspect it was the simcoe+amarillo blend.

Well, I've only tasted it out of the secondary, but the taste is good so far. You get a medium citrus hop flavor up front which blends into the rye and finishes smooth. Can't wait to get this on tap in a few weeks

So this ended up a little dryer then planned at 1.012 (7.0%), but is still fantastic. It has a good hoppy flavor that mixes well with the rye. Tons of aroma from all the late additions and dryhopping. I did not set out to clone Hop Rod Rye, but it seems incredibly similar to my untrained tongue. I'm going to pick up a bottle of Hop Rod tonight to do a tasting with and will post the results.

So I finally got around to tasting this against Hop Rod Rye. The aroma was identical and the tastes are surprisingly similar, although mine is lighter in flavor, color, IBU's, and ABV. Like I said before, I wasn't trying to make this as a clone of Hop Rod, but this turned out pretty good.
